QTBIPOC (Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Club

This club focuses on creating a safer space for queer and trans People of Color to socialize or make connections with other QTBIPOC folks, and to have a space to talk about issues that they experience as people who have multiple and intersecting identities. We hope to achieve a place where everyone can enjoy themselves, make friends, and have access to resources if they need or desire them.

Club meetings will be held Wednesdays every week from 1:30-3:30pm via Google Hangouts.
